A floating caravan, a heavy-metal dream on wheels and a truck as a luxury RV! This year’s Caravan Salon in Düsseldorf sets new standards – including the size of the expo itself! With two additional halls it is even more extensive than in the previous years. Spanning a massive 190,000 square meters, roughly 580 exhibitors present their trends and innovations from the world of travel adventure on wheels.
In addition to technical highlights such as the new Sprinter chassis from Mercedes-Benz, the expo also has a lot to offer retro fans. A special exhibition presents classic caravans and camper vans from the 1960s to the 1980s. Those who love things modern and, above all, expensive, can experience Mercedes-Benz’s high-end off-road RV, the Zetros. It celebrates its public unveiling at the exhibition. Fans of things extreme yet slightly less expensive will love the unique design of the Wacken caravan. The special edition from HOBBY creates a fitting monument for the world’s largest heavy metal festival. It was designed and constructed by the company’s trainees. The caravan can be purchased at an auction on eBay until 7.9.2014 (current bid: 36.000 euros). The proceeds will be used to support young musicians and artists. The Water Camper also numbers among the many other eye-catchers and unique solutions. The catamaran with a loading capacity of up to 4.5 tonnes means that camping knows no limits. Do you want to take your caravan out onto the lake? No problem with the special solution. Those who prefer things classic but comfortable can discover the new ML-T from HYMER. It represents one of the season’s new models in the class of semi-integrated vehicles and thanks to its all-wheel drive and a sport-safety suspension system it is one thing above all else: a safe and flexible home! The CARAVAN SALON – until 7.9.2014 at Messe Düsseldorf!
